Since Convene employees work across a number of venues and aren’t always in the same offices at the same times, the company makes it a priority to plan team activities where people can bond and blow off steam. Together, they volunteer to soul-cycle for cancer charities, form intramural sports teams, and participate in an annual, entire-office baseball game.
Convene makes learning and development an important pillar in the company’s culture. During onboarding, employees receive comprehensive orientations, and are taken on a tour of all departments and facilities to understand how the company works and who oversees each aspect. In every year of continued employment, team members receive an additional 60 hours of training.
